Canadian Program

NCASI Canada Team – Kevin Solarik, Kirsten Vice, Caroline Gaudreault, and Ilich Lama

 Despite the similar environmental characteristics of forest harvesting and manufacturing facilities operated by NCASI Member Companies in Canada to those operated by our U.S. Members, the different land ownership pattern and regulatory platform create unique needs for science and data to help Canadian companies cost-effectively meet their environment and sustainability goals. NCASI’s Canadian Program is grounded in a research program to address the specific needs of our Canadian Member Companies, and it is undertaken by a staff team located in Montreal, QC that is well-versed in the nuances of operating on the Canadian landscape. Our Canadian research program also leverages the strength of our program in the U.S., as well as the expertise of our U.S. staff, to provide our Canadian Members with an unparalleled resource to help them meet regulatory requirements and address stakeholder needs.

Canadian Steering Committee and Task Group Information

The NCASI Board of Governors appoints a Steering Committee in Canada. This committee is composed of Member Company senior personnel familiar with the environmental issues facing the forest products industry.

The Canadian Steering Committee meets several times annually to identify and prioritize the research projects undertaken by NCASI’s Technical Studies Program and to monitor progress toward achieving program results. Ad hoc committees and specialists convene as needed to provide expert advice in specific fields, such as forestry and health effects.
